Column Carmelo Anthony continues to raise his profile with each Lakers win



 Fans cheers were still echoing in staples center when Carmelo Anthony wearing street clothes, tinted, glasses and a thoughtful smile came backstage to meet the media Monday night, the sellout crowd of 18,997 roared at his every move. Soaking up the energy Anthony brought off the lakers bench and into the game against the charlotte hornets on Monday and reflecting it back at him in cheers and Chance, he was in his element putting the lakers ahead for good in overtime.


By scoring the last three points of his season: high 29, as they held on for a 126-123 victory, a game that will make few highlight films except those that preserve the best moments of Anthony's stellar career. There were so many good moments on Monday, the 7 for 10 shooting from three-point range, the warm bond between Him and the crowd the boost he gave a team that still hasn't figured out how to mesh without the injured, Lebron James that it was difficult to imagine. Anthony's career appeared to be released by the Houston rockets 10 games into the 2018-19 season.

Vogel said I just never understood it from oblivion. To an early contender for the sixth man of the year is a long journey. His dynamic performance Monday was less an interface statement to those who thought he had little left and more a gift to a team that potentially gives him his best shot at an elusive championship.


The problem with that is, everyone else, thought that, but I never doubted myself in anything that I did so. I always stayed solid on who I am what I can do and if the right Situation for that came, I would have taken that situation, which was portland. They opened their doors up to me.


They gave me an opportunity to join the lakers and add to their string of aging. All-Stars meant he'd have to be a reserve. He was ready for that coming here.


It wasn't an adjustment coming off the bench. I've accepted that coming here he said the first time I came off the bench. It was a hard time coming off the bench.


It was something that I didn't know how to react to. I didn't know how to respond to. It was something foreign to me.


It was something I had never done before outside of playing with the USA team, but that was totally different. He added referring to his four Olympic medals, three of them, gold,.
